For the first time on Best Selling Cars Blog, you now have access to an exhaustive study of the 10 biggest car markets in the world halfway through 2012, with the evolution of the best-selling models year-on-year. There is a newcomer in the Top 10 club: Canada, with sales up 7% year-on-year to 862,830 units, it kicks Italy out of the Top 10 (817,987 registrations and -20%).
